Entrepreneurship has been the live wire in the economic hub of the world for decades, especially after the cold war where the right winged, capitalist economists silent the left winged proponents.
In, the Nigerian mixed economy (or so to say), terms such studentpreneur have evolved to spur young scholar into entrepreneurship,moreso that the government can not shoulder the responsibility of creating jobs for the steaming youths. So, it’s a common sight for undergraduate and even High and middle school students to be seen engaging in small businesses that could eke out a living for them and in most instances, pay their tuition fees.
It is in the spirit of the above, that an undergraduate student of The University of UYO, by name Destiny Abraham Nelson, who sells fish, emerged the winner of a cash price of N100,000.00. This fortune came her way after she participated in the monthly entrepreneurship contest, hosted by Princewill’s Trust. Her story was capture succinctly below:
”A fish seller and 100 Level student of the University of Uyo, Destiny Abraham Nelson has emerged winner of the monthly entrepreneurship contest, tagged Princewill’s Trust Help the Hard Worker. She won the prize, beating Nimi Jack and Oscar Nyesom.
